We are delighted to offer for sale this very well appointed detached family home situated within the peaceful, highly regarded and much sought after location in Hatching Green, West Common.

This attractive home was built by local and reputable developers Jarvis Homes, approximately 25 years ago. This was the original show home and the current owners bought it from 'new' and have since improved and extended the house, creating an excellent family home.

The property benefits from a wide frontage and arriving at the house, the front door opens into a good size entrance hall with oak flooring and staircase that leads up to the first floor landing. This well-proportioned house incorporates a self-contained first floor annexe, that does have independent and private access, if necessary. There is potential (subject to permission) to create a two storey annexe with improved access if required. No. 10 currently boasts six reception rooms, to include an impressive and dual aspect drawing room with feature fireplace with living flame gas fire, good size dining room with double doors opening from the entrance hall, a good size study to the front, a sitting room which is currently used as a playroom and a delightful snug that opens onto the rear patio.

The main living area to the ground floor is a large and impressive fully fitted oak kitchen which opens out into the breakfast and family room, with bi-fold doors providing access onto the rear garden.

Additional Information
The kitchen consists an excellent range of base and wall mounted units with granite work surfaces and includes a five burner stainless steel Falcon gas range with oven below and stainless steel extractor hood above. An integrated dishwasher, American fridge freezer, built in coffee machine, microwave are also included. The kitchen breakfast family area has hard tiled flooring, whilst the entrance hall, drawing room, dining room and staircase has oak flooring.

On the first floor there is a good size master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, dressing room and an en-suite bathroom. There are five further bedrooms, one of which can operate as a self-contained annexe with large bed/sitting area, kitchenette and separate shower room. This would be an ideal guest room or accommodation for an au pair or parent. A sumptuous white bathroom suite with whirlpool bath completes the accommodation on the first floor.

At the front a block paved drive provides parking for three cars, access to the garage with neatly maintained and mature garden area with hedge border and gated access leading to the rear garden. This is a superb feature of the house being fully enclosed and private with mature hedges and flower bed borders, mainly laid to lawn with extensive patio to rear of the property. The garden also incorporates a good size heated swimming pool with an electric safety cover when not in use.

High Elms is a popular cul-de-sac and is ideally located being within easy access of the centre of Harpenden, station, Common and The White Horse restaurant on Redbourn Lane. Harpenden's town centre has a comprehensive range of good shops including two supermarkets, a mainline railway station with an excellent service into London and the town is well served by excellent junior and secondary schools.

To fully appreciate the size and quality of this home an internal viewing is highly recommended.
